Chembine's New Knife Designed to Empty Jugs with Speed


Freeform Plastics describes its Chembine as “a cutting-edge way of mixing and blending your chemicals.” The chem-handler offers a 66 gallon (US) capacity designed for increased agitation, and faster jug emptying time.

Vertical ribs lock the tank into its stand, and, combined with a powerful vortex cycling jet system, step up agitation in the tank.

The square knife apparatus is also shaped for faster cutting, better draining, and an easier jug removal from the knife block.

“I think it’s been about 25 years,” said Freeform Plastic’s Kurt Luchia. “There really hasn’t been much innovation on the side of jug-splitting.”

In a test performed by the company, Luchia says it took 2.8 second for product to empty a jug “line-to-line” in the Chembine, while competitors’ knives took six or more seconds for the same interval.

The Chembine is offered with or without the Banjo 6.5HP wet seal pump, and can be used to mix liquid or dry chemical products.

Freeform Plastics is a division of Bourgault Industries, based at Saint Brieux, Saskatchewan.
